Just replaced both sides of my 1968 sprite. It was a kinda barn find, just gave up trying to use existing parts although i have a small machine shop. Decided to get new everything from Moss or Victoria British. Sad all parts are now made in China but look ok. Also replaced all bearings seals and did rear axle rebuild while at it. Havent finished car yet but only issue was brake shoes were very snug in the new drums, but tapping them arround a bit and slackening off brake adjuster to max they seem ok and wheels rotate freely. Also replaced handbrake cables and clevis pins while engine and gearbox were out. Parts are pretty inexpensive and its not worh using old worn and oil soaked parts. Good luck
